LTO4 Tape and Speed Advice?
Were currently running a weekly 850gb backup through a quantum superloader autochanger to 7x SDLT tapes on Veritas Backup Exec 10. It takes around 50 hours on a weekend. As you can guess were looking at replacing it.
I'm investigating an LTO4 autochanger device to get all this backup onto 1 tape for now. I'm sure the amount of data is going to grow.... Has anyone gone from similar to similar? Should we notice a reduction in the backup window with this new device? Or do I have to look at something with 2 drives in it to chop this down?
